You have joined the Central Chamber (or are considering) because we promote and protect a pro-business environment in Central and you want to be a part of that. We want to say THANK YOU for supporting that mission so we have put together some perks just for you – our member.
Monthly Membership Meetings
Meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month and feature guest speakers and an opportunity to network with other member businesses. A networking table is provided to allow members to display materials.
Business Over Breakfast/Business After Hours
Rotating between breakfast and after-hours events are held when they are scheduled by a local member’s business.
You have an online profile in our directory. It’s basically a mini-website for your business on our website. You can also enhance your profile to include their logo add a more detailed business description and push your profile to the top of your industry category. You can also post job openings, sales, special events and news on the Chamber website through their member login.
Once a week the Chamber newsletter will hit your inbox. As a member, you will hear *all* the Chamber news first. You’ll get first dibs on registrations, sponsorships and any new business resources. For a small fee, members can sponsor the e-newsletter. As a bonus, we would also highlight your business at the monthly membership meeting.
You could join a select committee of volunteer professionals who support the development and growth of the Chamber. The Ambassadors gain access to the local business community to make extremely personal connections. In return, they help us enhance public relations and communication for the Chamber, and serve as business liaisons to fellow Chamber members.
You could be in the room where it happens. Join a committee to build strong relationships with other business leaders and help the Chamber accomplish our mission of promoting and protecting a pro-business environment. Committees include Mardi Gras Ball, Chamber Golf Scramble, Christmas Festival, Workforce and Education, Membership Development and of course the Board of Directors.
We provide the ribbon, promotion of the event ahead of time and we’ll send your photo to our press contacts. We’ll send you a commemorative plaque to remember the occasion. This is done for our members free of charge. It’s a great way to celebrate a new business, remodel, adding additional services or a milestone anniversary. Basically, if you want a party – we’ll show up and party.
You get one free email blast to our entire contact list once a year – so make it a good one! You provide the graphics and copy and we will share it with all your fellow Chamber Members.
We are constantly adding partnerships that benefit YOU. Currently (as of 2021) because you’re a Central Chamber member you can get discounts with Office Depot, Constant Contact and Dignity Memorial. Let us know if you want to add a member discount to the list!
